The Epipelagic Project is pleased to announce a significant milestone in its ongoing journey toward advancing environmental research and international collaboration. On May 18, 2021, the project successfully convened its fourth bilateral technical progress meeting via Skype, consisting of three insightful sessions. Each project partner gave a presentation of their work to the audience. Presentations from the Chinese and Greek delegations were included in the first session. A session devoted to questions, answers, and open discussion was held after that. The project’s methodology and upcoming actions were the main topics of the last session.
The two primary themes of discussion during the conference were how to construct an online web service and a decision support system to display the outcomes, and how to combine the research benefits from both sides.
Each case study’s development was discussed by both parties. The Chinese component presented the results of the Application of Multi-source Observation Technology in the Safety Monitoring of the Gudong Sea Dike, while the University of the Aegean describes the soil erosion estimation in the Aliakmonas and Axios river catchments using the RUSLE model.
